like mitt romney and lose four years ago, the campaign never stops. even if you are obama and u.n. four years ago, the campaign never stops. america seems to be less about governing and more about campaigning. everything you do is about the campaign. does that make sense? >> i agree with you. the problem has to do with government. there is very little time to get things done. as soon as these guys are in washington, they are already thinking about the next campaign. the first 100 days -- and now, sometimes, it is the first 50 days before things began to change. no matter how the race turns out in two weeks, you will see people, certainly republicans if the president gets elected, heading to iowa before the end of the year. no joke. the question is when we begin to cover it. usually, out of respect, we try to wait. i would bet by one year from now, you will see lots of stories in iowa and new hampshire. tavis: that scares me. >> they have to get fund- raisers, nail down supporters, and the earlier it begins, the more pressure there is on people to do it. if romney loses, you will see a w
know that we were listening and to connect their story to the outside world. tavis: mr. obama wants to return to all -- to washington, specifically to the oval office. mr. romney wants to deny him. there has been a great debate about obama care. the president says he now likes the name obamacare, so i will call it obamacare. there was a great debate. there was a suggestion that we do not need obamacare. he went on to suggest that if something happens to you and they rush to to the hospital, they are not going to turn you away. they are going to be there for you. for those who actually see public hospitals or our system in that way, that is, something tragic and traumatic happens to you, the hospital will not turn you away, what do you say to mitt romney or people who view that system in that way? >> when we started developing the approach to the film, ultimately, the storytelling project set that tone. it was going to be and a political film and we were not and have -- we were not going to have that narration or text. that decision turned out to be a powerful decision. what we decid
they would have phone to president obama under the situation. president obama would not have gotten us in that fix in the first place but it is an interesting election. i really think that, you know, who knows, it is all turnout, it is the polls are goofy, i mean one day i will have a candidate be five points up and the next poll, eight points down, you are like, well how could this be, you know, well let's split the difference and call it an even race, but how can these polls be so all over the map, same thing as you said with the real estate, there is who way that the gender gap -- how could they be for romney? how could women be for romney? person hood? he doesn't know if he would sign lilly led better. >> .. paycheck fairness. binders. i mean, how could women vote for romney? >> rose: thank you for comi pleare toto see you. see you next time.i/w captioning sponsored by rose communications captioned by media access group at wgbh access.wgbh.org >> rose: funding for charlie rose has been provided by the coca-cola company, supporting this program since 2002. and american express. a
to share. tavis: at this point, we are almost at the finish line in this race between obama and romney. to your ears, what did we miss in the debate, in the conversation about education during the campaign? what would you have liked to have heard more about? >> i think the main disconnect between what the conversation is about and what should happen is this negativity or pessimism that comes around, were you look at other countries test scores and say america is done for. the reaction is more testing, more structured. that is going to be exact wrong direction. you have to look at what america's strengths are. despite the fact that our test scores, our education system is very rigid, america is still a hot bed of education. it is not just technology. tavis: i hear your. and i don't argue that, except that example, respectful, only applies to that view, not to the many. mark zuckerberg does not happen every day. that is innovation. that is an example, but that is not coming forth from the masses. >> right now, america is a hotbed of innovation. right now you have structural unemployment,
to be perennial campaigns? if you lose, like romney did last time, the campaign continues. if you win, like obama did, the campaign continues. >> i think we need to change the constitution. there should be 16-year term. -- one 6-year term. i have a whole five-point plan to reinvigorate america. tavis: give me more. >> i would legalize all drugs and sell them at the pharmacy tomorrow. we would be in the black in a year. i would cut the defense budget by half and double the salary of every teacher in america. i would reinvigorate the ccc, give everybody $20, and fill some pot holes. keep it going, number four, i would mandate that every car in america has to drive on hydrogen fuel. in five years. tavis: that would solve the energy dependence problem. >> there are a few guys who give a lot of money to our politicians in the oil industry who would not like that very much. in short, what i'm saying is, in order to do this, i would have to seize power in this country. i am too busy writing books. tavis: what do you make of the fact that some of the things you just said our common sense ideas, particula
